Why is it critical tosuccess in Education?

Educational Focus PointsSAFE SCHOOLS Many schools (especially inthe US) are investing / orupgrading their securityinfrastructure (IP videosurveillance technology, newIP door access controlsystems, alarms andnotification systems) These schools will need toinvest in a network upgrade tosupport these enhancements.STUDENT SUCCESS Individual Education Basedon Student Data &Classroom Needs Analyze Student Attitude,Learning Move Tools to the Cloud for24 x 7 Learning Daily Per-User Information Online Testing & HighStakes PerformanceTestingFLEXIBLE LEARNING Distance learning, video &audio based lectures are allnow mainstream. On-line test applicationsmandated by most states. Requirement for reliable,stable network (both wiredand wireless) BYOD and high speedwireless needs to bothindoor and outdoorenvironments. 2020 Cambium Networks, Ltd
